There have been many approaches and many new schools of thoughts as to how vitamin D actually helps you in getting healthier. Some researchers are of the view that high level of sunshine can give you the rich level of vitamin D. it can lower to risk of having cancer and leads to longer life. These researchers also claim that high levels of vitamin D in the body colds, flu, and other respiratory infections.
Some researchers go totally in the opposite direction. They claim that they have tested for vitamin d and its effects on health and no such benefits have been proven rather exposing oneself to excessive sunlight can lead to skin cancer and other skin-related diseases.
Many researchers and scientists at Johns Hopkins University are working to find that whether vitamin D really helps in fighting against so many conditions or not. They conducted a study over a time period of 20 years which included the responses to the surveys being conducted on over 10,000 Americans.
They were interested in looking how vitamin D levels and exercise affects the incidence of heart diseases. They found that there is a direct relationship between exercise and vitamin D.
The first part of the study showed that the more the participants exercised, the more vitamin D was in their blood. The second part showed that the more vitamin D participants had in their body, the more they exercised and the lesser was the incidence of heart diseases.
So it was concluded by Erin Michos, M.D., M.H.S., associate director of preventive cardiology and associate professor of medicine at the Ciccarone Center and also the coauthor of the study that people tend not to have an adequate exercising routine and thus have lower vitamin D levels. Thus, he says, that we should encourage people ‘move more in the name of heart health.”
She was also of the view that there is no need to have more than 20 Nanograms per milliliter of vitamin D levels. She is also of the opinion that we should encourage more exposure to sunlight which is a natural source of vitamin D rather than taking supplements for raising the level.
One should have a healthy and balanced diet which contains plenty of whole foods, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, and drink a lot of water. The recommended is eight glasses a day. Keep exercising and staying healthy is the key. Researchers and doctors focus on getting a healthy lifestyle and active routine. It is also important that people should keep their balance in check according to their height and for that, it is important that health professionals should educate the general public more and more about the BMI standards.
So the key point to remember for all of us is to mix vitamin D with exercise to get in shape and thus avoid getting heart diseases. It has also been seen that those people who exercised regularly tend not develop heart disease, blood pressure, and diabetes.
